Liverpool: Fans fume as their side are forced to play two games in two days

Liverpool fans are unhappy that their side must play two matches within a day, after an announcement from the EFL.

After winning the Champions League last season and beating Arsenal on penalties at Anfield in the Carabao Cup, it now means that the Reds must play the domestic cup tie and play in the Club World Cup in Qatar within 24 hours.

The club announced on Tuesday that their quarter-final tie against Aston Villa will take place on Tuesday December 17th, just one day before their Club World Cup semi-final in the Middle East.

It means that Jurgen Klopp’s side will field “two simultaneous squads” to fulfil both fixtures.

The EFL have confirmed in their statement that it was Liverpool who asked for the match to be played on this specific date, indicating that the club had no choice but to play the fixture on the date originally scheduled.

Supporters were not impressed with the decision and were quick to voice their views on social media.

Here you will find some of the best responses from Liverpool fans:
